Sunday Roundup

Surprise! You are not seeing the gorgeous Arianna here for the weekly roundup because as Huffingtonpost.ca continues to ramp up, we are bringing aboard all sorts of homegrown products --including, now, me. I have just joined HuffPost Canada as managing editor for blogs. That means it will be my job to assemble a lively, interesting and original group of Canadian contributors to entertain and inform you every day. We've had a lively time this past week. We've just launched a Living section under editor Sarah Kelsey, who wrote a poignant and strengthening post about coping with divorce based on her own experience. The ongoing protests in front of the White House over the Keystone oil pipeline was briefly enlivened by the arrest of actress Daryl Hannah. Newly minted HuffPost bloggers Rachel Ryan and Ethical Oil.org's Alykhan Velshi were there to report on the protests firsthand for HuffPost Canada. Next week stay tuned for all the celebrity mayhem that will arrive in the form of the Toronto Film Festival.
